|Location and accuracy||Redman and others (1989) sampled several creeks about 2 miles north-northwest of the southeast tip of the Snettisham Peninsula and panned minor amount of gold. The occurrences are about 0.3 mile south of the center of section 6, T. 47 S., R. 73 E.|
Geologic descriptionRedman and others (1989) identify the rocks in the area as marble cut by quartz veins, and argillite and mafic metavolcanic rocks. They collected seven samples; the highest gold value was 0.1 part per million and there were no other metals of note in the samples. However, they did pan small amounts of gold from several of the small creeks in the area.
